It must be a fever that is catching because everyone seems to be talking about cleaning out closets and re-organizing around the house. Well, same was true for me yesterday. I tackled my closet in the bedroom, and got rid of 4 huge bags of clothes and 2 bags of shoes, including one bag that was all running shoes (7 pairs, to be exact). Why was I keeping 2 years worth of old running shoes? Hard to say exactly, except that I'm kinda attached to those old pairs; still, holding onto them is silly, especially when they're taking up so much room.
So, I loaded up all that stuff and made a run to Salvation Army to drop off the clothes and regular shoes and this afternoon, I'm gonna drop the running shoes off at my local running store (they donate them to a running charity). Feels good to clean out that kind of stuff -- plus, my closet feels so much bigger now and I have room for a brand new wardrobe! :)
After the closet cleaning frenzy, I spent the afternoon relaxing with a book, and in the evening, I made dinner, and Jerry and I watched "Caddyshack" and played Risk. After 2 and 1/2 hours of that game, I forfeited. Not necessarily because I was losing, but because I was tired of the game. I like Risk; I just wish it could take about half the time to play; oh, and I wish Jerry wouldn't delight so much in annihilating my armies. He's quite vicious when it comes to world domination.
